PROJECT / ACTIVITY REPORT
Project Title: SFU Rotaract's Team Building Activity: A Day at Manila Ocean Park
Date: December 5, 2011
Venue: Manila Ocean Park
The magnificent Manila Ocean Park was the venue of the team building activity of the SFU Rotaract Club on December 5, 2011. This team building activity began with the students enjoying a delicious feast at the Makan Makan restaurant, followed by watching the tricks of the sea lions at the South American Sea Lions Marine Life Habitat.
The students later observed the various types of jellyfish at the Jellies Exhibit and then enjoyed the chilly world of Trails to Antarctica. Towards the end of the day, the students tried the Fish Spa, visited the Oceanarium, pat a few cat sharks during feeding, and experienced a scary 4D haunted house.
Asked for comments, Jody Bangayan, 3rd Year Business student said, “I really had a great time watching the sea lion show. Also, the jellyfish exhibit is a good attraction because of those colorful lights inside the jellyfish tank, and the Oceanarium where we saw the beautiful aquamarine life of the fishes. In other words, the trip to Ocean Park is really awesome and worthwhile!”
As we all know, team building is one of the most effective ways to improve a team’s performance. It enables team members to get to know each other more, thereby improving communication amongst them. The team building activity of the SFU Rotaract Club was certainly a success because the students truly interacted with each other while enjoying each other’s company at the Manila Ocean Park.
Chaselle Rodriguez, 3rd Year Business student added, “The ocean adventure trip was very entertaining and helped deepen the bonds among the SFU Rotaract members. It had double purpose—it was both a team building and a stress-relieving activity. I especially loved the sea lions.”
